In West Philly, the battle between developers looking to create student housing and residents who want to keep the area dominated by single family homes continues. HOW Properties, a development firm, is in the process of building a 16 unit apartment building at 4619 Woodland Avenue to house University of the Sciences students.
The developer says that the sixteen units will have as many as five bedrooms, and that rents will range from $800 (for the lone one bedroom unit) to $3,200 per month. They also say that they'll complete the apartments next summer.
